Ernest (6489) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain / cracker), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Very straightforward rendition, but very clean and precise and attractive. What it may lack in charisma is made up in execution and sheer quaffability...this is made for drinking by the liter.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 Draught at Witzgall in Schlammersdorf, Nov 2012: Lustrous golden. Creamy and pasty white crown of foam. Pleasant nose of honeysuckle, lilac, pepper, lemon, minerals, fresh baguette Pils malt, new-mown hay, and a fleeting glimpse of fruitiness and lager yeast. Soft body. Stiff and tight carbonation. Firm hop bite trails a succulent kiss of malt and a well-defined flourish of toasted bread. Quite zippy with a strong mineral dimension accompanying the tightly structured malt base. Ample peppery zing exudes beneath the soothing Spalt-drenched nectars. Obscure lemon verbena herbalness adds intricacy to the refined hoppiness. Malt is sublimely clean and flawless within the lean frame. Squeaky clean, yet lip-smacking at the same time. Finishes crisply toasty with edgy baguette notions paired with appetizing dabs of vibrant flowery softness and a poignant yet teasing pepper aspect. A thoroughly enjoyable and dangerously quaffable helles (finished my 8 oz. pour within five minutes) that does everything flawlessly as it toes the line with extraordinary finesse and delicateness. I would feel blessed to have the fortune of drinking this liquid gold every single day. Good heavens is this clean!

3fourths (8345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Witzgall Vollbier Helles, draft at the brewery in Schlammersdorf, a noon start to the day’s bike ride involved this simple but lovely crisp and clean lager. sharp, clear gold body with a hugely-rocky head, I don’t know how not to give this a five, it’s a swimming pool of fluff. yeah. pretty straightforward pale malt sweetness (honey, crackers) and light edel hop nose (spice, dried grass, fruit cocktail) with a smacking, crisp finish (minerals, sweet corn, minor apple juice), mostly clean. quaffable and delicious, a very good helles, but quite basic. continued down the road to Hallerndorf where we found some of the best lager around from Lieberth.

May 2013: Clean, minerallic, crisp, lightly sweet, medium to low bitterness. subtle spalt lemon spice aroma hops. toasty, clean, quiet malt flavor. nut oils and cracker-y toasted malt.

yngwie (14630) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle, at Plan B. A clear, golden beer wtih a small, dense, white head. Biscuity malts, butter crackers, citrusy fruityness and notes of apple on the nose. Grainy, malty flavor with fruityness and some bitterness. Too low on bitterness in the end too. Dry, medium bodied and smooth. A decent beer, but a bit too boring for my likings. 110527

Dedollewaitor (14210) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle @ Brewery. Poured into my ceramig Witzgall mug. Cloudy golden with an egg white head on top. Herbal and spicy hoppy nose. Lots of wet grain and bread. A bit of a rough hop bitterness. Smooth. Ends dry and hoppy.

TEJA (1414) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2011
Draught at the brew-pub. Medium to short beige head. Clear golden yellow color. The aroma has some sawdust! and pilsner malts, followed by some quallity nobel hop aroma. The taste is sweet, caramell sweet with a small bitterness and litle unbalanced.

Maria (10188) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2011
It’s golden with a creamy, white and lasting head, and the aroma has notes of bread, malt and flower. The flavour has a light sweetness and lovely notes of fresh-baked bread, straw and flower, and the finish is slightly dry – really nice.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear yellow with a tall, dense white head leaving laces. Sweetish malty nose, but slightly skewed - biscuity. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet clean maltiness, again a little bonbonish though. Hardly any bitterness. 210511
